Neapolis University’s digital event entitled Connecting the Business World and Universities: The Contribution of the Liaison Office with the Labour Market was conducted with great success on April 15. During the event, more than 100 participants had the opportunity to learn about the contribution and services of the liaison office.
The important contribution of Neapolis University Paphos’ liaison office in the communication of the study programmes with the contemporary needs of the labour market was highlighted, while the advantages for both students and academics in this process were presented.
The active support of the students for their future career approach and their gradual integration in the labour market is a main goal of Neapolis University Paphos’ liaison office.
Through the office, the university has succeeded in intensifying its communication with the business world, in order to receive feedback on its curricula and to offer its students the opportunity to gain work experience related to their field of study through placements in the private, public and semi-public sectors.
At the same time, the participants were informed about the benefits related to the placement of students in companies and organisations for internship purposes. The benefits arising from the cooperation between the academic community and the labour market were also described.
Finally, Neapolis University alumni shared their experiences gained through the placement in companies and organisations and explained how they exploited these opportunities for their professional development.
